The Immigration Research Group of the Council for European Studies aims to draw together scholars and graduate students from a variety of countries and disciplines to foster research around themes of migration, immigrant integration, majority-minority relations, pluralism and multiculturalism, discrimination, equality, and the political, social, and individual responses to migration. While most of its activities center around European countries or Europe as a region, given the nature of its core themes the IRG also encourages research that situates Europe in an international, trans-Atlantic, or transnational context.
The principal goals of the Immigration Research Group include: building networks of scholars to encourage conference panels and small-scale collaborative work that enhance participants’ understanding of a particular theme; sponsoring workshops on topics of interest to members that lead to joint publications; mentoring graduate students by connecting them to scholars in their substantive area who are not at their home research institutions; and encouraging mutually beneficial connections between scholars and policymakers.
